My self-summary
Self-professed unrepentant weirdo seeking same. :)

I'm a mix of outspoken passion and playfulness, equally excited by political issues and art projects; creative, curious, and colorful; fond of adjectives and alliteration.

I grew up on Long Island, but I'm convinced that was just a fluke of the cosmos and I got lost on the way to being born. I love this city as if it were a benevolent wizard capable of consciously loving me back. I can't imagine living anywhere else. Though I will still correct you if you say "in" Long Island instead of "on."

Subway and sidewalk etiquette are important to me. Pop-up pools and pocket parks give me joy. I'd rather pretend I don't speak English than admit to a tourist that I don't know how to get to where they're going. I always stop to pet the bodega cat. I like my substance with a dash of style.
What I’m doing with my life
Putting the commas in the right places.
I’m really good at
Righteous indignation.
Picking out perfect birthday presents.
Constructing elaborate, lunatic Halloween costumes.

(*Not necessarily in that order.)
The first things people usually notice about me
Most likely the white streak in my hair. It's been gaining prominence since I was about 22.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Almost anything by Margaret Atwood
The Corrections
The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time
The Hunger Games (I know, I know...)

Aliens, Inception, The Usual Suspects; Little Miss Sunshine, Run Lola Run; Pride & Prejudice, The Princess Bride...

I was one of the volunteer spellers when I saw The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee on Broadway. My word was "pakapu." I got it wrong. It was devastating. :(

Better Call Saul, Survivor, and Game of Thrones are my must-see TV. I also have something of an unhealthy affinity for that Tiny House show on HGTV.

As a former college radio DJ, there will always be a special place in my heart for all things "alternative."

I could eat grilled cheese and tater tots or my mom's chicken lasagne every day of my life.
Six things I could never do without
1. Books.
2. The Internet.
3. Prescription sunglasses.
4. An unlimited MetroCard.
5. My crazy, amazing siblings.
6. Goldfish crackers.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
The state of the world and how to fix it. Starting my own business. Renovating my bathroom. What to get for lunch. What to watch on Netflix. What my cat is chasing. Bizarre children's book titles. Tattoos. Birds. Is Pepsi really just "okay"?
On a typical Friday night I am
Unwinding. This process takes various forms.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
When I was 5, I requested an R2-D2–shaped cake for my birthday. The bakery called my mom twice to confirm that the cake was indeed for a girl.
You should message me if
You are bookish and boyish and a little bit edgy, like sci-fi and subtitles, enjoy amusement parks as much as museums, and would like to meet a dynamite girl. ;)
The two of us
